I forgot my headphones at home today. Now i'm stuck listening to the guatamalan chick humming her native tunes in the most off key way. It's awful. It's painful. I put on my desk fan for some noise to drown it out. I have no headphones, no computer speakers no way to silence myself from the insanity of this office like I do each and every day. I'm scared as to what i'm going to hear throughout the day. I have had headphones with me since probably my 2nd day working here.

Fuck.

That is exactly what I was going to recommend.

I panicked on the way in and was going to stop at a walgreens or something but I was too tight on time. Now i'm listening to two coworkers talk about a spouses job search. People talk about the most inane shit at work.

Uh oh! Oh Shit, snap, as I was typing the person in the cube next to me who I was complaining about the other coworkers singing to, totally hooked me up! she has an old tore up pair of headphones she don't be using no more but they still work! Woot!

Problem solved. I knew posting would help.

Nope, not yet at least :) We had some scheduling conflicts last week and this week is going to be difficult as well. We shall see if things get worked out though.

Alright, so I'm back from the car and all is well. Not the best sounding of course but they work, I threw on Chemical Bros. "Dig your own hole".

Truth be told I wasn't there but if you saw the picture you would have nothing but sympathy for the child.

I would wear headphones at work, but I need to hear if someone is walking behind me so I can close my browser. :) Luckily I have iTunes on this computer.

Yeah, i'm fairly certain i've developed an ocd about it actually. I listen to tunes when driving, grocery shopping, inside any and all stores, walkin around the house all evening long. I feel like a retard with a helmet. Most times I don't even want to listen to people talk even if they have something to say to me.

I kind of have a system. I listen to the stern show on my ipod on the way to and from work. During work I listen to music all day. On lunch, the stern show. In the evening, it's more stern while i'm eating dinner or snacking and then music scattered throughout the evening if i'm not watching tv. Usually the later it gets the more it's music. If I go outside and smoke, it's Stern again. Sometimes I fall asleep to stern and not music as well.

i posted it in response to a picture Lee posted of me in the background of the Bloody Beetroots at Detour. i went through some flickr pics of Detour and saw that one of Chris. i thought "how nice. Chris doing what he does" and didn't take into account the rest of the picture which has become a source of fun here on these boards.

I wonder if Supre was more interested hitting on the the guy to his left in the picture with the blue shirt and loads of armpit sweat or the asian girl to the right who looks like she is screaming in pain because Supre is so close to her.
